    I installed one care in Feb. 2007.  The Defragment time out is unacceptable!!!  It may take Virus scan 2 hours or more and it does not time out!!!

  • I'm not sure I understand. Is your problem that you want Defrag to run completely during the Tuneup no matter how long it takes or that Virus scan takes a long time?

    Defrag is *never* complete. As soon as the file blocks are rearranged, new writes are happening that cause more fragmentation. Running Defrag for 15 minutes at a time is a reasonable thing to do in that it will take care of the largest fragmentation and then move on to other Tune-up tasks. If you want to perform a full defrag, run it from the Start menu.
